  • true: cfg_save saves aliases.

cfg_save_binds

  • true: Automatically save the configuration on exit
Configuration will be saved in the main user configuration file, that is config.cfg which can either be placed in the quake/ezquake/configs in your quakedir, or in your home dir in /ezquake, depending on cfg_use_home setting.

Not implemented yet.

cfg_save_unchanged

  • false: Do not sleep between frames, use CPU as much as possible.
  • true: Sleep between frames, make CPU available for other processes.
